In a nutshell, these are the aims of the Benevolent Fund Trust

The Chartered Institute of Marketing Benevolent Fund (CIMBF) offers support and advice to CIM members (past and present) and their dependants when misfortune befalls them. This support, encouragement and advice may be in collaboration with others such as the Citizens Advice Bureau or SSAFA and generally is intended for:

  • The relief of immediate hardship
  • To help provide a significant enhancement to the quality of life
  • To help with an enhancement to health
  • To enable the continuation of independent living
  • To assist in decreasing future living costs
  • To contribute to a safer lifestyle
  • To provide relief in an emergency situation
  • To enable the applicant to continue to work

This list is not intended to be exhaustive.

The Trustees work on a one-to-one basis with applicants, keeping in touch to ensure that any support provided has fulfilled its intended purpose.
